Given my lack of time for blogging as of late, I guess it's not surprising that I never even showed you this piece in progress.
After casting on the day before Valentine's due to a craving for vibrancy, I blocked and photographed this past weekend, only two weeks later.
Back to the subject at hand, the pattern is straightforward, and I can tell my lace skills are improving, as I only had to tink back a row once while knitting this.
Even before blocking, the pattern is visible and appealing. I used less than two skeins of Shibui Sock in Poppy, which I purchased on my Boston trip last fall.
My grandfather commented to me this weekend that I should make my grandmother one in a shade this bright.
He says a girl needs some color in her life, at any age. I want to keep this one for me, but the next shawl I make for my grandmother will indeed be in a bright shade than the first.
See? Even Olias wants in on this shawl.Raveled
In case you're wondering the name of the shawl is a Spoon song, one of my favorites!
